What is bullying and why do bullies bully?
Aggressive or dominating behavior is often displayed by teenagers and can continue over a lifetime in abusive relationships. Such a primitive psychological defense mechanism finds roots in an attempt to control disturbing feelings.
Many times a bully is seeking power, especially if they did not receive a sense of security or empowerment at home. When parents or caregivers attempt control children by creating fear or shame, perhaps the smaller, more scared children or those with deeper emotional insecurities become victims, while others will hide behind their discomforts by showing abusing behaviors and exploiting other kids’ insecurities.
Join Dr. Sadigh and his special guest Sandra Dupont, LMFT to find out how the bully and the bullied respond in relationship with self and others. Learn what needs must be met in order to prevent bullying. Sandra specializes in supporting teens and their parents in understanding and addressing the issues teens face today.
Sandra Dupont has advanced training in adolescent psychology & mental development, Family Systems, Child Advocacy, Respectful Parent Training, Working Effectively with Burned-Out Parents, as well as nine years experience as a practicing counselor for families with teens.

On December 3, 12-year-old Ronin Shimizu, a former 6th grader enrolled at Folsom Middle School, committed suicide after schoolmates had bullied him for being a cheerleader.
According to the CDC, suicide is the third leading cause of death among young people, resulting in about 4,400 deaths per year.
Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University.
A study in Britain found that at least half of suicides among young people are related to bullying
10 to 14 year old girls may be at even higher risk for suicide, according to the study above
According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and 160,000 kids stay home from school every day because of fear of bullying

My Guest is Tiffani Shaun K Palmer. Miss Palmer is the founder of S.T.E.P Resources, a non-profit organization for young women ages 14-25, who have been victims of bullying, teen pregnancy, rape, abuse and low self esteem. Their goal is to reach and counsel as many young women as she can and spread Christ and his love to them. To help them become independent, strong, to help them find housing, provide food church and job placement. We are looking to help over 2,000 young ladies by the middle of next year.
Victims of bullying include girls and boys of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds. But some children are more likely than others to be victimized because they appear small, weak, insecure, sensitive, or “different” from their peers.
Some children can reduce their risk of being bullied by dressing or acting in ways that make it easier for them to “fit in.” Yet children should not be expected to conform to avoid the threat of bullying. Every child’s individuality should be appreciated for the value it brings to the group, rather than suppressed to reduce the risk of victimization. Furthermore, not all children are able to alter personal characteristics that may place them at increased risk.
